from denmark' as approach as well a lot of pressure was christian erickson to make tors ga them at the end of the day they're both going through to >> what's the mental will in game like tha. if you don't need to score do you care if do you. >> want to school goals. hel you where yound finish first second and who you play in the next round whether the first place team or runner upo. but the confidence. you need to have that confidence and finding ideas in the ge. >> to be winner right. >> correct, correct. how do we find different ideas with differentec players and connons in the game to score goals? it's always important. >> both those teams move on now and it's losers here unfortunately australia peru evenhough peru finally got to score a goal a world cup. two goalst . >> wai minute. and won a game. >> and w a gam. >> i was waiting for -- >> didn't count for much. >> it came late in the t game, but when you look at peru, in the qlification process i thought this team is going to do extremely well.
